I live in northeast Ohio where I write sci-fi, fantasy, and suspense novels, along with a few short stories. Mostly I write stories I think I'd like to read with characters that are interesting enough that readers want to find out what happens to them. I also spend time teaching and training at the karate dojo my wife and I founded, building a Japanese garden in the back yard, and taking walks in the woods with our dog. I have four novels in print, a collection of short stories, and a co-authored children’s book. I continue to work on my next book and seem to always have several stories in various stages of completion.

Hi Tony,
Thanks for the question. No epiphany. I have been interested in possible psychic abilities that might be hidden in the human mind and wondered what might happen if someone developed a way to enhance them beyond any normal expectations. Slowly that central idea grew into a novel with the central character driven to do something rash that led to lots of problems for him and those around him. Change is hard to accept for most people and this was change on a cosmic scale so the problems grew in proportion. As for the title, the book went through several working titles before I settled on Foxworth Terminus and that came about because Reggie Foxworth is the character who is changed and Terminus because what he's done will end civilization as we know it. I'm working on a sequel titled Foxworth Continuum the goes into the new order. (less)

As you might expect there is some violence within the story but nothing that isn't in movies or TV shows they are watching and perhaps less than many other popular Young Adult books. (less)

Well, “War Party” sales event started yesterday and got off to a great start thanks to lots of readers who bought the book at 99 cents. I hope they like the book and might even post a review when they’re done. The book nearly made the top 100 yesterday in the suspense category which was a pleasant surprise. I even got sales at Apple and that hardly ever happens. Thanks everyone. And it’s not to...
